Barbarella, that box in the corner that says WildEarth.tv, is our picture in a picture option. It allows us to display two different views at one time. It is not determined by which site we see it through. Doug and Raptorman control the view that is on the cam there and it is sort of the "standard" view if you will.

Thank you for the screen caps typos!  I missed seeing the lovely flicker.  :eclove

Shortly after 6 P.M. we heard trills from a single eagle.  boonibarb and mishi happened to be in the area and they heard them too (but couldn't locate the eagle).  booni and I thought it sounded like a male.

Thanks for the screencaps typos... neat seeing the little guys there... nice flicker, never seen one before. Sorry I missed the trills today but glad to have heard that there were some... could be?? Great too that Wren did see an eagle although not one of ours. Won't be long now  :biggrin3

Birdvoyer, thank you for the explanation!  I have very poor eyesight, so I didn't realize that's what it was.

Another question - will normal full-screen be restored, or just the regular sized screen against the full-screen black background?

I can't believe it's already Oct. 3rd!  I know, Ma and Pa might not make an appearance at the nest for several days.  It's just the anticipation!  :heart

Sunday - Oct 3 - 7:24 AM

Loud trill heard, close to nest.  Sounded like Dad (high and sweet).  Perhaps he was in the nearby Babysitting Tree.

Just before seven this morning Mishi was out for a walk.  She looked up at the Peters' tree and there he was. Welcome home dad!  :heart  (Mishi took photos).

I am new to this site and can't wait to see the return of Mon & Dad.  We have seen eagles near our home in Central NY on the Tioughnioga River.  I am hoping to see the birth of new babies for the Hornby eagles.

Welcome BARBS and enjoy the Hornby Eagles.

Mishi, how wonderful that you saw Dad Hornby and were able to get photos.  I hope you are enjoying your visit to Hornby?

It's sooooooooooo exciting to know that Dad is back.  Now we get Mom back and that will make us all happy! Thanks for the pictures snapped of the nest too.
Mishi what a treat for you to see our Dad on your visit to Hornby!
I'd jump up and down but would probably break my other leg.  :giggle

I just started watching eagle's nests this past year.  I learned so much but there's a lot that I don't know.  If both mom and dad left the nest area and are due back, wouldn't they have gone wherever they go together?  If so, wouldn't they both come back together at the same time?  I told you that there's a lot that I don't know!

redacd1: interesting enough Dad always leaves the nest area first and they arrive separately. If they are together during their absence is really not known. They do cement their relationship tho when back at the nest. Dad courts mom by bringing her gifts of food.
